Deadly Mosquito-borne Virus Sickens Thousands

Ad Feedback

Thousands have been sickened by a painful mosquito-borne virus in the Caribbean.
 
The outbreak of the Chikungunya virus was first detected in the eastern Caribbean five months ago. Symptoms of the virus include high fever, headache, and joint pain.
 
The Pan American Health Organization reported more than 55,000 suspected cases in Haiti, the Dominican Republic, and other islands in the Caribbean.
 
Seven deaths are associated with the virus, and health officials have confirmed at least three cases in the United States.
 
CBN's Operation Blessing is providing medicine to help treat the outbreak in Haiti. Operation Blessing will distribute the meds to clinics in poor rural areas of the country.
